If you’ve heard the buzz about eliminating excess fat and cellulite through freezing, but are unsure exactly how it functions – fear not! This popular cosmetic procedure has been revolutionized over time to provide improved results. 

Freezing fat cells is a non-invasive cosmetic solution to get rid of stubborn fat, you know, the kind we’d like to get rid of along our thighs, on our waists, and even under our chins. The technical term is cryolipolysis. It works by using sub-freezing temperatures to destroy subcutaneous fat, a type of fat under the skin. The body sheds the dead fat cells while protecting the skin and surrounding tissues. It’s a powerhouse option for anyone trying to get rid of fat, especially after diet and exercise haven’t helped. With this treatment, fat loss can be seen in problem areas such as

  • Thighs
  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Backside
  • Beneath the chin
  • Under the butt

But just freezing the fat isn’t the only option for fat loss. There are different ways to incorporate the use of cold temperatures to melt away fat that also come with fewer risks.


CryoTherma infuses state-of-the-art technology curated by Icebox Studios with heat and cold to radically melt away undesired fat. Using a unique process called T-shock, this painless technique employs a handheld wand to destroy fat cells, diminish cellulite and smooth away aging skin. It is so revolutionary that it won an award for Most Innovative Aesthetic Device in Paris at the Gicare Exhibition. The cost for CryoTherma exclusively at Icebox is $200-$350 per area, with treatments taking anywhere from 30-45 minutes. For best results, 3-5 sessions are recommended.

This fat-reducing process uses an applicator to apply suction over the targeted area. Freezing temperatures are used to destroy the fat cells which will later get flushed out from the body. What makes this treatment different is that during the session you may feel some pulling of the skin and in order for this process to work properly you must have enough fat for the applicator to adhere to. Some minor side effects include tingling of the skin and bruising or darkening of the treated area. Average costs range between $2000-$4000 per area.

So what makes CryoTherma such a desirable treatment?  For one thing, it is one of the safest fat loss treatment options. It requires no surgery and there is zero downtime, so you’re able to get on with your day right after your treatment. It’s also less expensive and invasive than standard cryolipolysis. The best part is that results can sometimes be seen immediately, but most are seen after 3-5 sessions depending on the guest. 

Cryotherma is the clear winner for a less invasive, more cost efficient way to eliminate fat & cellulite and tighten skin.
